Johan Matthew's Christening

It was held last Saturday, November 27th at the same church that hubby and I got married in and was officiated by the same priest that married us. Cool huh?

It was a sunny morning and I was pretty stressed out after arriving at the church 30 minutes before the scheduled time without one godparent in sight (except for Ninong Chris who was our official driver for the day). I made a text brigade to all the godparents reminding them that the ceremony will be starting in a few minutes. Imagine how mad I would be after paying for 20 godparents and only one will be present for the ceremony. All hell will break lose, surely. Hehe. Fortunately, Father Sonny del Claro started the ceremony late. A few godparents arrived just in time so I was a little bit calmer when the ceremony started.

The ceremony was solemn and fast. I think we were done after 30 minutes. Our photo ops went even longer than the ceremony itself. :)

The reception venue was colorful and festive. Thanks to my cousin and Johan's Ninang, Ate Leslie for the decors. I super like everything you did. Nagmukhang bongga ang reception ni Johan eventhough simple lang ang food package that we got from Shakey's.

Johan cooperated and was awake during the reception so everybody got to see how cute he is with his chinito eyes. But, he grew fussy after so many photo ops and cried a little bit.

All in all, it was a successful event. We got to share our cute little man with everyone we love. Here are some photos:
